Hello, everyone!

Yes, it’s true, the finale of Danny’s story is coming in a little over a month from now!

I am not kidding. After almost exactly eight years since Part Six of my story, Danny, was posted here in BCTS, I am making the announcement: Between March 1 and March 10, 2018, I will be posting the first chapter of Part Seven, and each chapter will be posted every Friday morning (EST) until the final chapter’s posted. At worst, it may be delayed by 2 or 3 weeks, but it will definitely push through.

My word on it. I Promise. So, please spread the words, dear friends - Bobbie C’s first posted TG story will finally be concluded. No need for the online comments, PMs and emails, guys - it’s coming! Really!

However, the expectations of most Danny fans have become cemented over the eight intervening years, I’m sure, so I have to make sure that the quality of Part Seven will echo those of Parts One through Six.

So - I’m going to need some help. I’m going to need the assistance of a beta reader-slash-editor. Normally, I'd ask my friend, Holly Hart, to help me, but she passed away a few years ago.

If you’re interested (despite the fact that I cannot pay you for your services lol), please do send me a PM here in BCTS.

Here’s what you will need to do:

(1) You must have read Parts One through Six of Danny, and enjoyed it. Danny needs a sympathetic and enthusiastic friend to help finish his story, and this is essential because your main role is to provide input to make sure the story is in keeping with the style, tone and events in the previous instalments - after eight years in gestation, this may be difficult for me, so I need help.

I will be giving priority to those friends I have corresponded with over the years that are already familiar with the story, of course, but if they’re not interested, then it’ll be a free-for-all.

(2) Your secondary role is to provide input with regards grammar errors. The previous instalments have their fair share of grammar snafus. Hopefully we can minimize this with Part Seven.

(3) Don’t tell anyone that you have signed on to this project. I want it to be a surprise.

(4) You will be starting work on the third or fourth week of February, to input comments in a Google Docs file. That means, you will need a Gmail email address, have a sufficiently-enabled computer to access and edit a Google Docs file, know how to work with a Google Docs file in comment mode, and must commit to not share the story with anyone until the story’s posted in BCTS. This is, of course, not really enforceable, but I hope I can count on your promise. Okay?

And you must also have time for this work. RL has a nasty habit of interfering with writing, and RL must take priority.

(5) My word will, unfortunately be the last word. So, I hope you can live with that. Arguments over stories have caused the end of a lot of friendships, and I don’t want friendships to be damaged just because of a silly story. So, I hope you’ll be okay if I override you on occasion.

(6) I’m afraid I can’t provide any compensation, but I will, of course, credit you in the posted story.

So. PM me if you think you want to do this.

For those who haven’t read Danny yet, here’s the link:

Thanks, everyone! See you later!
